This week was plenty of eggplant. It took me ages to get up the courage to try out eggplant but I am definitely so glad that I finally did. Two of my favorite eggplant meals are eggplant lasagna and eggplant chickpea soup, both recipes that I have enjoyed many times over the years. I have linked to both of these on our Pinterest account. Do check them out and enjoy and do remember to follow us on Pinterest for more of the same.

This week we also received some romaine lettuce, far better for you thank iceberg as one cup of romaine contains the same number of calories but more protein, fiber, calcium, potassium, folate and more. All around romaine is a much better choice than your standard iceberg. So be sure to power up your salads by switching to the good stuff. Your body will thank you.

A last mention is the cucumber we received which we turned into a beautiful and delicious take on a classic salad for our Spiralized Cucumber Greek Salad. This one is perfect for your office lunch. Toss in some chicken cubes and you are all set!

Now continue on and check out our video to see what else is in the box and what other tips and recipe ideas are shared. Then scoot on over to our Giveaways page to participate in our monthly giveaway. Have fun!
